Approach to healthy diet and activity
Tuesday, June 25, 2013
I am noticing I am gaining weight again (4 lbs.) after losing about 50 over 3 years. I am not sure how I lost those but probably through a number of different things I have done. I also have been tired/low energy since my second hip operation in April and I did lose an accelerated amount during this time. I will be seeing my doctor for a general check up in about a month.
I am gearing up to work on my health again after having both hips replaced since the new year. I do not do well with structured attempts at diet or exercise so choosing to work on lifestyle change to get to my goal (another 50 lbs). My theory is if I can maintain a healthy lifestyle for a sustained period of time I will naturally adopt it on an on-going basis.
I treasure the ability to choose things I like and have failed at routines like memberships and formal diets in the past. I think this means that I will need an array of choices for activities and food that all fit into a healthy lifestyle but give my sufficient choices that i will be able to choose something I like at any given time. Enjoyment is also a critical item for me and is related to developing some very poor eating habits.
Possible? We'll see. Comments appreciated.
